Notes

  • Status Note: There 1997 (OHS PC Database. October 30, 2004)
  • Built by Christoph Linde, working for Möller. Rear gallery. Compass 56/30. (OHS PC Database. October 30, 2004)
  • Updated through online information from James A. Kriewald, PhD. -- The organ really was totally built by Christoph Linde and Richard Howell at the Möller Organ Plant. To call it a "Möller Organ" is very misleading. It is in a beautiful unstained solid cherry case. (Database Manager. February 10, 2008)
  • Updated through online information from James A. Kriewald. -- Christoph Linde was not working for Moeller. He was self-employed, constructing the organ at the Möller plant. (James Kriewald) (Database Manager. February 11, 2008)
  • Updated through online information from Jeff Scofield. -- The Möller factory specifications make no mention of another builder and the organ was featured in a Möller ad in THE AMERICAN ORGANIST. (Database Manager. April 3, 2011)
  • Rebuilt by Taylor & Boody 2015. (Jeff Scofield. July 12, 2016)
